10 Questions, 10 Opinions, 1 Blog
I’ve actually been meaning to do this for quite some time, but just never HAD the time to do it. My good friend from GameSpot, BraindeadRacr, had some opinions he wanted to share, ten of them in fact, and asked me to respond to them as well. So, without further ado, my opinion!
10. Should I get Assassin’s Creed?
This has given so much controversy on the question of “is this game good or not” that it’s rediculous. I’ll have to admit, it’s a love or hate game, really. I think I’ll just start off my opinion with saying, YES, I think you should get Assassin’s Creed.
But I must say straight up, first and foremost, that this game IS repetative. You have to do the exact same couple of things in each city every time, and I think that the whole story engine was on a bit of a standstill in their studio there for a while. But while I say that, the game mechanics and features were one-of-a-kind, never used before, and I hope we see more of it in the future.
To be honest, there were a lot of things that were not to like about Assassin’s Creed, but in the overall aspect, I believe that this game is a must PLAY, at the very least, as I believe most people will agree with me on that.
9. Is buying the 40GB version of the PS3 an ideal choice?
While I would normally say “no” to this, with the 80GB versions being pulled from retailers, and most people not wanting to play old PlayStation 2 games, this may just be the best choice now.
Plus, you can just put your own hard drive into it. Thank you Sony! 300 GB FTW. Problem solved!
8. Master Chief v.s Soap McTavish.
Better question: WHO CARES? XD
7. Kane & Lynch: Dead Men, how bad can it be?
Let’s be honest, I’ve never played this game, but have you even LOOKED at the game videos? I mean, even THEY can tell you the whole story on how bad this game really is.
Now, I know this always comes up when talking about this game, so dealing with the controversy that came up around it, I just have to say that what’s done is done, and, hey, he’s doing better things right now I’d say.
6. Racism in Resident Evil 5.
DAMN YOU CAPCOM! That’s racist against zombies! What did they ever do to you?! They’re just hungry, and all you do is mass slaughter them! You are HORRIBLE, TERRIBLE people! You should be ASHAMED.
But in all seriousness, for those of you who are offended by Resident Evil 5, you are an idiot. I can’t help but be blunt with this, because truly, this has to be one of the dumbest claims I have ever seen against a video game. I wish people weren’t so stupid in our world.
5. How come the Wii‘s dominating the market?
$250 system, marketed towards families and all ages, this seems like a no-brainer.
4. Should I buy Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare?
While everyone says that this is an amazing game, and while I agree that you can get enough time playing it online to make it way worth it’s money, I’ll admit, I still don’t own it myself yet. I love a good game as much as the next person, and I think that the online aspect of games makes it much more worth it’s value, but, I dunno… I think there’s just something about it which is turning me off.
While most people would say, “GET THE 360, IT HAS GAMES!”, at the same time, in the long run, you’ll regret it I think. Let me quickly compare the two and show you why I think that you should get a PlayStation 3 and suck it up, haha.
a) Built-in Wireless Internet vs. $100 Wireless Adapter
b) Free to play online vs. $50 to play online
c) Blu-Ray vs. HD-DVD (I was going to price it, but it’s changed now)
d) Future games, check ’em out
That’s all I’ll say, because if you like the 360, you’ll skip this section anyways. If you were even on the fence, you’ll now agree with me I’d say.
2. Are the console wars actually contributing to the rivalry issue between Nintendo, Microsoft and SONY?
Huh? Console wars? That’s just something that people made up so that they could be more stupid.
1. What is the meaning of life?
And there you have it folks! Read, comment, agree, disagree, love me, hate me, DO EET! I want to hear it all. Be honest, don’t run around what you think. I didn’t, and neither should you… ya chicken.
